...about me. ;)
Courtney (one of my new favorite bloggers, by the way :)) "nominated" me for a "Liebster Award"...basically, it's a way to get to know other bloggers!
Unfortunately, I don't think I know of 11 other "small" blogs... so I'm not going to follow the rules and do all the tagging and nominating, but I will answer the questions. Because it's fun. :)
1. How did you name your blog?
I was trying to think of something catchy, and we DO live in a "little house in the hills." :)
2. How long have you been blogging?
Since April 2010! I was pregnant with Rachel.
3.Who is your favorite author?
I hardly ever read. But back in the days when I did read, my favorite author was Elizabeth George Speare. My two favorites of hers are The Witch of Blackbird Pond (for young adult readers), and The Prospering (for adults). And if we're talking books, two other favs would be To Kill A Mockingbird and Peace Like a River.
4. What is your favorite movie?
The Village. The first time I saw it, I was sitting in a movie theater, and when the screen went dark at the end, I thought, "That movie was made for me."
5.If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I wouldn't. I absolutely love being at home.
6. Football or basketball?
LOL. Neither. I don't watch sports, or play sports. My husband has zero interest in watching sports, too, so we make a perfect couple. :)
7. Would you rather compete on The Amazing Race or Survivor?
I wouldn't?? ;-p
8. Favorite season?
Fall!! I LOVE the cooler weather, the darker evenings, the cozy (cute) clothes, the delicious beverages and foods, the beauty of the changing leaves...
9. Beach or Mountains?
Hmm... I'm going to say the beach, but only if the beach was completely empty except for us. :)
10. What was your favorite song this summer?
"Brother in Arms" by Celtic Thunder
11. Favorite place to shop?
For me? Goodwill. For the kids? local consignment sales
I really like the clothes at Target and Old Navy, but I almost exclusively second-hand shop.
